Supporting the Grid with Dynamic Residential Load Scheduling

Demand response (DR) for smart grids intends to balance the required power demand with the available supply resources. This is especially important with an increased amount of renewable energy sources since for most of them the energy yield cannot be shifted in time. For example, photovoltaic systems will provide their […]

Drone flight using 5G: Initial experiments

Drones are used in an ever-increasing number of applications, including the autonomous delivery of medication and the inspection of industrial plants. To fulfil these tasks safely and reliably as they move through our airspace, drones need to be linked to high-performance cellular networks. The new mobile telecommunication generation 5G promises […]
